BIG RAPIDS — In striving to offer more adults without a high school diploma an opportunity to obtain a high school credential, Michigan Works! West Central recently became a Pearson Vue authorized GED test center and now offers the GED test on computer. Online registration, scheduling and testing is now available to test-takers.
“December 2013 marked the end of an era for the paper-pencil version of the GED nationwide,” said Paul Griffith, executive director of Michigan Works! West Central. “While becoming an authorized Pearson Vue GED test center was quite a rigorous process, it was well worth it because a high school diploma or GED still remains the primary ticket to entry-level jobs. And many times, it’s also the prerequisite for career advancement or training."
